i think it funny, no, quite ridiculous that someone who criticizes a given app is often rebuffed with "let's see your app...", etc.

this is somewhat akin to someone watching, say, a football game and when a receiver drops a pass that by all appearances should have been caught... Joe Average Viewer says: "he should caught that, he blew it."

no one ever says, "yeah and i suppose you could've caught it?" hell no, because Joe Average Viewer is not a receiver.

ya dig?

Sunbyrne: this is a little AppleScript that handles it. Let's see yours.

While Ogg is indeed open source, it is misleading to label AAC "proprietary." AAC is part of the MPEG4 standard, which is open. That is, Apple doesn't own AAC, and other AAC codecs exist besides the one in QuickTime. So I believe that characterization of AAC is unfair.

Also, iPods don't support Ogg, but they do support AAC. For iPod users, AAC is a definite win over MP3.

Now, why you need to buy a program to do this when you can just write a little AppleScript to handle it is another issue entirely...

AAC ties you into another proprietary technology. Ogg Vorbis creates equal or better sound files and is Open-Source

Thanks for fixing the international symbols prob. Now if only you can tackle the colons thing... (I have to change colons a lot for classical CDs.) Still worth the $7 to me.

The "known issues" helped - call me lazy, but I just bought this. I love it. Thank you. Minus 1 star because sometimes the window disappears if not in use, and the only way to get it back is to quit and relaunch.

From the developer: due to an error on my part, version 3.1 was still posted for a time. As of 7AM October 22, version 3.5 is correctly posted. My apologies and thanks, Doug.
